Making it easier to homeschool in Salt Lake

This is a positive step in respecting the rights of parents to homeschool their children in Utah.

School districts would be prohibited from monitoring the attendance, teacher credentials or facilities of home-schooled students under a bill sent to the Senate floor Wednesday.

SB59 requires districts to grant an exemption as long as home-school parents sign an affidavit confirming their child will be educated at home and get instruction in core subjects as defined by the state.

The question I want answered is, "Who gave the right to the state to monitor to begin with?"

I would like to know the same thing since I live in Southern Utah. I have always been very grateful that we just turn in the affidavit and then go on with homeschooling!
